Why Maryam Nawaz Sharif's arrest today has become a headache for Pakistan

Sharif loyalists arrested as former PM returns to appeal conviction

Mr Sharif was sentenced by a court in Islamabad last week over the purchase of high-end properties in London.

Nawaz Sharif was also fined eight million and Maryam Nawaz two million pounds.

"We must change the country's future.This opportunity will not come again", he urged and asked his followers to support him at every step.

Quoting Dunya News, Newsweek Pakistan reported that Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz will be held in Adiala Jail for one day and then be imprisoned in Attock Jail.

Party spokesperson Marriyum Aurenzeb told PTI that police arrested the workers, mostly from Lahore, to stop them from welcoming Sharif at the airport.

Just like many others, Waleed Aly wasn't at all impressed with Kylie Jenner appearing on the most recent cover of Forbes . And, Dictionary.com chose to drop the definition of "self-made" at an expertly shady moment.

As per ANI, the PML (N) president said, "We thought Bangladesh is a baggage and it slipped off our hands". The former prime minister and his daughter were in London, where Sharif's wife Begum Kulsoom is undergoing treatment for cancer.

All arrangements have been made to arrest the three-time Prime Minister and his daughter by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team.

Sharif has been banned from participating in politics, and his brother Shahbaz Sharif now heads his Pakistan Muslim League and is fighting for re-election on July 25.

Until Thursday, the interim government had arrested over 300 PML-N workers under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance ahead of the former PM's expected arrival. Sources said that the decision to contain Nawaz Sharif at the Lahore airport was taken at a meeting of the interior ministry two days ago.

The military, which has ruled the nuclear-armed country for nearly half its history and ended Sharif's second stint in power in 1999 in a bloodless coup, denies involvement.

"I have to enlighten the Pakistani nation that I am doing this for them". It plans to place 371,000 soldiers around polling stations so there can a "free and fair" elections, it added. They have announced that they will address a rally in Lahore, after which they will surrender.

The kind of reception Sharif receives on the streets of Lahore will be viewed carefully in Pakistan, where political popularity is often measured by the size of rallies that politicians can attract. "It is incorrect to say that only certain people are facing accountability".
